Here is everything that is included in Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Solar Raid, which is now live on all platforms.

Operation Solar Raid is now live in Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege , bringing many long-awaited features including crossplay and cross-progression, a new and improved battle pass, a new map and a new Colombian Operator among other things.

Below, you'll find a full breakdown of the new content in Operation Solar Raid.

Operation Solar Raid new defender

Operation Solar Raid introduces the new Defender Solis and her SPEC-IO Electro-Sensor gadget.

Solis can clearly analyse and identify Attacker devices including drones, breaching devices, and more. Her gloves also allow her to interact with the gadget overlay and trigger a cluster scan. Solis is a medium-speed, medium-health Operator, carrying the P90 or an ITA 12L as a primary weapon and an SMG-11 as a secondary weapon.

Operation Solar Raid Nighthaven Labs map

Nighthaven Labs is a brand new map and luckily, it won't be bannable during Operation Solar Raid to ensure players get to learn and play on the new map during the season. 

Serving as an extension of Nighthaven's headquarters, the map’s open sea, green cliffs and clear sky invites players to explore its immaculate architecture and technological marvels on display. 

The interior features many access points, allowing for free navigational flows, especially if players are ready to take down the many breakable walls. 

Both Attackers and Defenders will have to avoid getting too comfortable as they could easily be flanked and lose their position.

Rainbow Six Siege: crossplay and cross-progression

In addition, Year 7 Season 4 brings new updates to Rainbow Six Siege: crossplay and cross-progression. Console players will now be able to squad up with friends from other consoles via Ubisoft Connect. Players who wish to opt-out of crossplay can turn off Crossplay Matchmaking in the Options menu. 

After logging into their Ubisoft Connect accounts, players’ progress, currencies, and items will be shared across all platforms. Additionally, their Ubisoft Connect account will get one free Alpha Pack. 

Operation Solar Raid QoL changes

Quality of life updates include the removal of friendly fire in the preparation phase, the ability for Zofia and Capitao to switch ammo types for their device without needing to equip it, a bombsite marker update, and drone speed is no longer slowed down when strafing diagonally while using a controller. 

Lastly, to rebalance the relationship between Operator speed and health, all Operators now move at the same speed while aiming down sights.
